Green Juice

The Healthiest Drink on Earth

Of all the kitchen appliances I love, and I’m passionate about quite a few, a juicer is one that I’ve always lusted after though never had a chance to try out. Until now.

In this post I’m sharing “The Healthiest Drink on Earth” one of the juice recipes I created that leaves me feeling energized and refreshed after I drink it.

Lately we’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about juicing. The benefits of green drinks have been sung from the webpages of many health gurus and blender companies alike. Proponents say that juicing provides the body a quick injection of nutrients while giving the digestive system a rest from breaking down fiber.

Drinking fresh juices can reduce your risk of cancer, boost your immunity, remove toxins from the body, and help you lose weight. *Click here for a Cooking Up Prana Tweetable*

I was just going to share “Green Juice, The Healthiest Drink on Earth” but I had so much fun juicing and snapping shots of this gorgeous, colorful juice that I decided to include two drinks. The first is called “Prana Juice” as it is literally teeming with life force boosting fruits and veggies including: ginger, carrot, beets, oranges, and lemon (from the neighbor’s tree).

And now for The Healthiest Drink on Earth…

This “super drink” is literally made from the best stuff on Earth (unlike Snapple which uses questionable ingredients such as high fructose corn syrup) making it full of goodness (think antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, and K that will cycle through your body cleaning up any toxins in sight).

Green Juice also has heaps of calcium, beta carotene, potassium, magnesium, and folate. By adding ginger you give yourself an extra dose of anti-inflammatory action which helps to reduce arthritic pain.

The results of my juicing craze…
1) Two fabulous drinks full of healthy, life-drenched prana.
2) We go through fruits and veggies like whoa.
3) I crave fresh juices over less healthy options.
4) I feel more energized and light
5) We do a lot of dishes

Green Juice: The Healthiest Drink on Earth
Green Juice, The Healthiest Drink on Earth:
2 tablespoons of ginger
3 stalks of celery
cup of parsley
1 granny smith apple
1 lemon, peel removed
2 cups of kale, your choice of variety

Prana Juice:
2 tablespoons ginger
2-3 carrots, peeled
2 small beets, scrubbed well and halved
2 oranges, peel removed and halved
1 lemon, peeled
Add ingredients to juicer and press start to begin juicing fun. Remember, juicing is not an exact science so feel free to play around with the proportions. Just make sure to wash and scrub your veggies well before juicing!

Avoid Prana Juice due to heating qualities of raw beets. Use only 1 tablespoon of ginger for Green Juice
Prefer Prana Juice over Green Juice
Recommend the Green Juice over Prana Juice
Cheers to Healthy Juices!
